After The Rain

Let's see what's happening in Cindees' Garden today, shall we?

Peonies are about ready to open!

Rose Mallow is blooming!

Iris is blooming! I use to know all the names but over the years I have forgotten what they are. I still love them all just as much though(-:

White Iris

Jupiters Beard

More Iris!

Tubs of Geraniums,California Poppies and Jack(-:

This is one of my favorite roses. I am pretty sure after searching around that it is a George Burns Floribunda Rose. Since the tag was missing from both of my roses I have no way to be sure but from seeing pictures online it looks exactly like the George Burns. It is a prolific bloomer in my garden!

Hi Cindee, That pink Iris is so beautiful. Probably the color I need. hehehe Most of mine are purple with a mauve one stuck in somewhere. Same with my Siberian Irises. I really need to expand their colors. Your peonies look about the stage as one of ours. The rest are no where near it. Hmmm wonder why, different kinds?

Tootsie said...

your garden is so pretty! my stuff is just starting to poke thru the ground....can hardly wait!

CiNdEe said...

Hi RainGardener,
Thanks(-: I guess the peonies are a different variety if they are not budding out yet.
I only have white Siberian Iris. I wish I had blue/purple ones. The white ones someone gave me so thats why I have that color(-:

Hi Tootsie,
Thanks! It is really growing now!
I bet you are so excited for yours to all get growing too! Your yard is beautiful!!! I am still not over the greenhouse plants! That is breath taking!! It was always a dream of mine to have my own greenhouse and raise plants from seed. You are so lucky!!!

Love your tubs of geraniums.You are so far ahead of us in your garden growth. I have that rose and it is just forming blooms.

Thank goodness for the rain - it gives me a chance to catch up with my visits :)

I might be a stickler about naming wildflowers but when it comes to the garden flowers I forget or never knew what they were in the first place. Too many - especially Iris have been foraged from abandoned homesteads or from those that sleep soundly at night :)

Gail said...

Very nice blooms Cindee! I love the Jupiter's Beard...now where did mine disappear to! Glad you had a good rain! gail

tina said...

Wonderful! I love all the blooms, and that cut out of the boy and girl is pretty cool too.

CiNdEe said...

Hi Hocking Hills Gardener,
Thanks(-: I think they will do much better there this year. Last year I grew them in pots and they just didn't do that well.

Hi WiseAcre,
You are so funny.(-: Thanks for making me laugh(-:

Hi Gail,
I just bought my Jupiters Beard last year. I use to have one years ago and loved it and then I forgot about it until someone posted a picture on their blog(-: My Grandma use to have some in her yard. They seem pretty easy to grow.(-:

Hi Tina,
Thanks. I have a boy(Jack) and a girl(Jill) carrying a pail. No hill though(-: And three girls playing jump rope. They are in my childrens garden(-:

Sheila said...

Is your rose 'Sentimental'?

CiNdEe said...

Hi Sheila,
I have a Sentimental but this one is not. I thought it was something like Carnival or Clown ...something like that. I am going to do a search on the net for it. I think it could be a "Weeks Rose".

Meadowview Thymes said...

Love all your blooms Cindee. I especially like the plants potted in the buckets! You are I have soo much the same taste in garden treasures!

CiNdEe said...

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
Thanks(-: We do have a lot of the same tastes in garden art(-:

Jamie and Randy said...

Just beautiful! I love the rose!AND all the other beautiful blooms. :-)--Randy

Jacque said...

Beautiful garden, Jack is especially sweet! We call Scout, our Jack Russell, the big white squirrel stalker! They love being in the garden don't they!~Jacque

Kathleen said...

Great blooms Cindee. You are way ahead of my garden except for the Jupiter's Beard. It's almost ready to open here too. I love that plant, when it's done blooming I shear it off with the weed wacker and it starts all over again! Do you do that too? I have buds on my peonies but they are still pretty small, and no sign of iris yet. The Rose Mallow is beautiful. Have a great weekend.

Brenda Kula said...

I love your tubs. Where did you get them? They don't look new, so I assumed they were older. My neighbor gave me one I'm going to plant up soon. Your garden always reminds me of mine, because we seem to have the same whimsical taste! Happy Mother's Day.
Brenda

CiNdEe said...

Hi Jamie and Randy,
Thanks! Glad you liked them(-:

Hi Jacque,
Jack loves to chase and bark at the grey squirrels. He would love to catch one. He loves being outside! Anything that runs from him is what makes him most happy(-:

Hi Kathleen,
I do cut the Jupiters Beard back after it blooms(-: That plant is so nice and easy to grow(-:

Hi Brenda,
My brother got those tubs and most everything else for me from the recycle place in his town. Can you believe people just throw that stuff away? It is so fun to get.

Gorgeous blooms in your garden today Cindee. The rain really makes everything pop, doesn't it? :) Your George Burns Rose is very interesting with it's two toned coloring. My Jupiter's Beard didn't come back this year. :(

Rob said...

I keep forgetting the names of varieties of plants. This is always after I have forgotten to write them in the gardening notebook.

Amazing for me to see you having hummingbirds in your garden Cindee. You're very lucky.

Rob

CiNdEe said...

Hi Rob,
Thanks for stopping by(-:
I should be better about writing things down when I plant them. Usually I poke the little marker into the ground at the time but that most of the time gets lost over the years.
I love the hummingbirds. They are so fun to watch! I enjoy all the birds that visit the garden.
